How We Can Best Help As Your

Arizona Truck Accident Lawyer

We will explain what you should do about your accident and injuries.

We will discuss and analyze your case in detail with you and answer all of your questions. We will explain the different types of compensation and damages that you might be entitled to because of the injuries you sustained in the accident.

We will immediately begin speaking with the insurance company representing you and the at-fault driver and make sure you are not taken advantage of. We will aggressively represent you in obtaining the maximum compensation possible for your injury claim.

We will help you locate doctors to treat your injuries.

We work with doctors who are specialists in virtually all types of accident cases and injuries. We will assist you in finding the right doctor for you who will be agreeable to wait for payment until your case is resolved (if you do not have medical insurance).

You are entitled to comprehensive medical treatment even if you do not currently have the money to pay for it.

We will assist you with the damage to your vehicle.

If your vehicle was damaged or destroyed in the accident, we will help you to recover your losses.  Most Arizona lawyers do not help in these matters. 

We know it is important to you and in most instances will assist at no additional charge.  We will advise you if your vehicle has a diminished value due to the accident.  We will explain the compensation available to you for those losses and will handle those claims on your behalf.

We will investigate your accident to prove the other party was at fault.

We are one of very few law firms in Arizona that have on-staff investigators available to work on your case immediately.  Completing an investigation early in your case is of critical importance.  Our investigators will obtain witness statements, take photographs of the vehicles and the scene, talk to investigating officers and detectives, order police reports and 911 tapes, and investigate anything else that may be necessary.  

Many law firms feel it is a waste of time and money to investigate a case thoroughly.  We believe you will be more successful monetarily and this is the reason our law firm has a 99% success rate. 

We fight to help you get the largest money award possible.

Our attorneys are experienced in court, trials, arbitration and/or mediation proceedings.  Unlike many law firms, we will not just settle your case for an unfavorable amount, we will fight for you.  Accident victims receive an average settlement of 370% more if they use qualified attorneys such as those in our law firm. 

Our lawyers are trained in the skill of negotiation.  They are going to be far better at settling a truck accident case than a lawyer who does not practice solely in this area as we do.  We know how much the case is worth and know how to conduct negotiations in order to obtain top dollar.

We will save you money on your medical expenses.

If you have received benefits from a medical provider or health insurer, then that company will have what is called a lien against your accident claim.  A lien means that the health provider will be entitled to reimbursement for services rendered on your behalf before you are paid any money from a settlement or judgment. 

We will negotiate with all health providers to reduce your overall medical expenses so you can retain more money in your pocket from the settlement or judgment.

Common Truck Accident Injury Questions

Insurance companies have teams of lawyers and adjusters representing the person who caused your accident and they will do everything possible to reduce the value of your claim. Facing such a team of skilled professionals without having your own legal representation is unwise. It is possible to pursue your claim alone, but you will literally be at the insurance company’s mercy.

The insurance company will make you only a small offer or will simply deny your claim altogether. Unless you are well-trained in the law and understand your legal rights, it will be very difficult to combat the insurance company all on your own and know which avenues you should pursue.

IMMEDIATELY. Hiring experienced truck accident lawyers, like those at Warnock MacKinlay Law, is vital if you are injured in a wreck. Unfortunately, we see so many victims attempt to represent themselves and generally fail miserably for a number of reasons. Studies have shown that a claimant who is represented by legal counsel “nets” (after medical bills and attorney fees) in excess of 300% more money than those who handle their own claim. The only thing more important than hiring a qualified lawyer after an accident is seeking medical attention, and the lawyers at Warnock MacKinlay Law can help you with a good, competent accident doctor.

Generally, the answer is “No”. Remember, the insurance company does not work for you – they work for the individual who caused your accident. Oftentimes, even before you obtain medical attention and assess the extent of your injuries, you may be contacted by a claims adjuster who will make you a ridiculous, low-ball offer.

Many people accept these types of offers and sign a release, only to find out further complications “down the road”. Tough Luck. In most states, including Arizona, a release is worded in such a way to make it almost impossible to ever seek any further compensation after you sign, even if you find your injuries are much worse than you ever anticipated.

We make it easy to afford an attorney if you have been injured in a truck accident. We do not charge any fee whatsoever for an accident consultation. In fact, we do not charge any attorney fees unless we are successful in recovering money for you. Even if there are costs involved, such as investigation, medical records, medical reports, deposition fees and the like, we will advance those monies for you until your case is resolved. We will even refer you to doctors who will not demand payment until the case is resolved. It is our job to make the resolution of your case as easy on you as possible.

The amount of money you will ultimately recover depends on a variety of issues, the most important of which is the nature of your injuries caused by the accident and the comprehensive medical treatment you receive for those injuries.  At Warnock MacKinlay Law we seek reimbursement for any or all of the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of love and support
  • Mental and emotional distress
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Permanent impairment and disability
  • Property damage.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents in Phoenix, AZ and Elsewhere in the State

Many truck accidents are due to recklessness or negligence on the part of the driver. However, sometimes, issues in the trucking industry lead to crashes. There is a currently a nationwide shortage of truck drivers. Companies often push the envelope to get their deliveries done on time. While this may benefit their customers and their bottom line, it also puts road users at risk. Let’s look at some of the common causes of truck crashes.

Driver Fatigue

Truck drivers who work extremely long hours are likely to lack concentration and proper judgment. They are less likely to pay attention to road conditions, traffic, traffic signs, or the stability of their cargo. They may even fall asleep and lose control of their vehicle.Drivers are often under pressure from their employers to meet unrealistic deadlines. Their schedules should allow time for rest stops, meals, sleep, and even delays. However, trucking companies’ profits depend on how promptly they can deliver cargo so many push drivers to cover more ground. Also, the drivers are often paid based on how much driving they do. This gives them an incentive to push themselves harder. They speed, take drugs to stay awake and ignore maintenance problems.

Distractions

All drivers should focus their attention on the road. However, truck drivers should be even more attentive given the size of their vehicles. Still, some of them talk on the phone or text while driving. Others eat or groom themselves while behind the wheel. Taking your eyes off the road for even five seconds is enough to cause an accident.

Overloaded or Improperly Loaded Trucks

Each truck is designed to carry only up to a certain amount of weight. That cargo should be properly distributed and secured. If a truck is loaded up with more weight than it should carry, rollover accidents can occur. Cargo which is not secure can also lead to crashes.

Driving Under the Influence

Truck accidents, like other vehicular accidents, can be caused by drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.  Drinking alcohol reduces drivers’ reaction time, alters their visual perception, and limits their ability to make rational decisions.  Of course, driving under the influence is a crime and it shouldn’t be hard to prove such drivers were negligent. An experienced lawyer can help you bring them to justice.Truck accident lawyers have the resources to determine what caused the accident and who should be held responsible. If you or a loved one was seriously injured or killed in a truck accident, we will fight for your rights. With accidents involving large trucks, several people may be responsible including:
  • The truck driver
  • The driver’s employer
  • The owner of the trailer
  • The manufacturer of the vehicle’s components
  • The government entity in charge of the design and maintenance of the road

Types of Injuries Often Sustained in A Truck Accident

Identifying the correct defendant is important if you want to get compensation for your injuries. Truck accidents often result in serious injuries which require a long recovery period. Common injuries include:
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injury
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Neck and spine injuries
  • Lacerations and burns
  • Loss of limb
  • Loss of one or more of the senses
  • Severe bruising
  • Temporary or permanent disability
  • Death

What to Do Following a Truck Accident in Arizona

There are certain things you should do after your crash to increase your chances of getting compensation. The first is to seek medical attention even if your injuries seem minor. You need to tell the doctor about all your pain and discomfort so they can put it in their report. Your Arizona truck accident lawyer will use this information to help quantify your damages.You should also:
  • Take photos of the scene, the road conditions, your injuries and the vehicles involved.
  • File a police report and get a copy.
  • Call a truck accident lawyer.

Compensation Your Arizona Truck Accident Lawyer Can Seek on Your Behalf

  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Medical bills
